Human Intelligence 2.0

A Collective Future?
How will we manage the transition?

The world is moving faster than we can think; so we have to change our thinking! As the pace of change accelerates, we are increasingly asking individuals and organisations to become more agile. Organisations (and therefore people) will have to transform and develop the systematic ability to test, learn, adjust and adapt. To tolerate missteps, mistakes, false starts, fumbles, and, yes, even failures.

That’s all much easier said than done. How can organisations develop cultures that hardwire innovative behaviours such as immersive research and rapid prototyping?

We face a host of wicked problems, risks and systemic challenges beyond the reach of existing institutions and traditional authority structures. Problems like climate change, increasing mental and chronic illness, scarcity of resources, automation of jobs and Artificial Intelligence, unethical governance and growing inequality require unprecedented collaboration among different organisations, sectors, communities and nations. More than ever before, we need to foster collective leadership, lateral thinking and inspiring initiatives to manage the massive transition ahead.

Furthermore, leaders need to be deeply aware — right now, not down the line — of the transition taking place. And they need to have clarity about the roles they can play in dynamically steering their organisations and preparing their employees and contractors for the future of work.

Bringing together hundreds of leaders from business, government, academia, community, not-for-profits, media and the arts, Creative Innovation 2019 will explain the drivers of the changes taking place, the implications for the future and the strategies and thinking that governments, businesses, NFPs and individuals will need to adopt to be successful. The future is exciting, challenging or terrifying! It just depends on your perspective and your capacity to embrace change.

Ci2019 offers an outstanding opportunity to educate, challenge and engage leaders and emerging talent on this transition.

This award-winning event will help you upgrade yourself and your organisation to Human Intelligence 2.0. It will give you the insights, knowledge and tools to develop the agility and leadership mindset you need to transform your organisation and inspire you to build a collective future for humanity.

Don’t miss the world class line-up of visionary innovators, futurists and leaders that are gathering at Ci2019 to help us better understand, collaborate and prepare for our rapidly changing world. We look forward to welcoming you, your team and stakeholders to this important future-shaping event.

  • Leadership, Ethics and Governance
  • Automation, AI, Robotics and the Future of Work
  • Education and Entrepreneurship
